Jayson Tatum didn’t address any specific trade rumors around the Boston Celtics in a recent interview. But Tatum acknowledged that he’s heard the rumors.
“That’s the world we live in, right? … You never know what is true and what’s not true, but it gets people to talk about it, and I guess that’s the idea… If you pay attention to everything you see on Twitter or TV, you drive yourself crazy. I think that’s just something that you have to learn just to keep your own sanity and your own peace,” Tatum said. “They will literally say anything, and some of it might be true, and there are other things that just couldn’t be further from the truth…. So, just control what you can control. That’s what I always live by.”
Tatum did say he’s excited about having Malcolm Brogdon and Danilo Gallinari join the Celtics for this upcoming season.
“Two veteran guys that have accomplished a lot in this league, and that are coming to a situation where they are trying to add to a really, really good team, and they do make us better,” Tatum said. “They make us a lot better to hopefully get us over that hump to be a championship team. Two guys that really know how to play the right way that truly just want to win at any cost.”
